    Enjoyed it, Jess. Man, how on earth can they play your ending so super soft?

    And it goes without saying, having the JACK play it, will open a number of future doors. Push it hard and often on prospective musicians regardless of their instrumentation.

    I actually met the JACK quartet back in 2011 at a New Music Festival reception in the host's home. There were an awful lot of younger composers chewing the quartet members' ears off in order to make an impression. LOL!!

    BTW, I looked at your Praxis score and the one thing that I didn't like was the location of your page numbers. They're too close to the top staff causing me to think those numbers have something to do with the rhythm of the top staff. You might want to consider a different location.

    Yes, having JACK play my music looks very nice on my CV

    and thanks for the tip regarding page number location. Better off at the bottom of each page instead?

    This is from the American premiere in NYC last month by JACK Quartet. (The world premiere was in Germany in 2018.)
    I find this recording to be a bit too tinny and dry, with dynamic range that is far too wide. Once I get the thumbs up to post my newly edited version of this recording that fixes some of the issues with it, I'll post a link to it.
